Micro Focus

Data breaches abound. Identities are phished. Cyber attackers easily jump over perimeter walls. Apps let in bad guys (or accidently let data out). Company laptops or BYOD mobile devices are lost or stolen, along with corresponding trade secrets. What do all these things have in common (besides a company losing money, trust, and reputation)? These are all challenges that InfoSec professionals face on a daily basis. If only there was one place for Security pros to get educated, build their skills and network around the challenges they face protecting their users, apps and data. Oh, but there is!

You are most cordially invited to attend the Micro Focus Cybersecurity Summit 2018 on September 25-27, at the Omni Shoreham in Washington, D.C. Now that Micro Focus has successfully completed the spin-merge with HPE Software, we want to highlight our expanded security portfolio via this Summit. We believe in this mission of security education so much that Micro Focus Security has made this event FREE to customers and prospective customers alike.

Experience Security at the Speed of Innovation

This unique Summit will allow you to interact face-to-face with our product managers and security leaders such as Micro Focus CMO John Delk and Former FBI Cybersecurity Special Agent and Director, Chris Tarbell. Join other like-minded customers to hear best practices, solution roadmaps and cybersecurity topics critical to your organization/agency.

This Summit in September will allow you to gain in-person insight from Micro Focus product development leaders about key trends and planned enhancements for our industry-leading cybersecurity products, including ArcSight, Fortify, Identity & Access, Voltage and ZENworks. The last day of the Summit will allow you to participate in hands-on workshop sessions to personally experience how these products can secure applications and data, drive identity-centric controls and intelligence and leverage powerful analytics to detect known and unknown threats.

Detect known and unknown threats through correlation, data ingestion and analytics

ArcSight Intelligent Security Operations provides real-time threat detection, analytics and investigation from any source, anywhere. Micro Focus has developed a portfolio of security-awareness products that provide organizations like yours with detailed visibility, analysis and orchestration for solving threat-landscape challenges. The continued development of ArcSight Data Platform (ADP), Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) and ArcSight Investigate are well-equipping Micro Focus customers and their SecOps organizations to be aware of internal and external threats, known and unknown malicious events and data across their global networks. The ArcSight product track will detail our SecOps portfolio and the beginning-to-end solutions for security awareness.

Learn about secure development, security testing, and continuous monitoring and protection of apps

Today, businesses rely more and more on software to be efficient, competitive and profitable. This results in a never-before seen increase in the number of applications and releases, and significantly shorter release cycles. These factors, combined with more and more attacks targeting applications, mean soaring risk for businesses. One of the biggest challenges facing security and risk professionals at every organization today is keeping up with the exponential growth of applications and related risks. Sign up for the Fortify product track to learn how they use agility, integration and automation capabilities to provide a comprehensive and seamless approach to application security.

Discover an integrated approach to Identity and Access Management

Identity powers security because it provides the capabilities to know the right identities have the right access to the right things at the right time. Users, devices and things have added a layer of complexity to security management that requires infrastructures to provide adaptive security capabilities with a streamlined user experience. Organizations need to move the conversation to adaptive technologies to deliver continuous compliance and proactive risk management, and to drive business value. Join the Identity and Access Management product track to see how identity powers adaptive security technologies while also providing a positive user experience and driving business value.

Explore Data-centric security solutions that safeguard data throughout its entire lifecycle

Micro Focus is growing its data security portfolio, adding key capabilities to make it the most comprehensive data-centric security portfolio in the industry. We recently added transparent protection for cloud, commercial and in-house applications without critical application changes or integration required. Upcoming additions to the portfolio will add even more functionality. Micro Focus is investing heavily in the protection of data of all types, structured and unstructured, whether in use, in transit or at rest, for persistent protection and management of sensitive data across the enterprise. Join the Voltage Security track to learn more about our game-changing data-centric product developments—and how they can benefit you.

Ensure all devices follow standards and compliance to secure your network

Looking for a solution to help you manage and secure your endpoints? Want to know what ZENworks is all about and where Endpoint Management is headed? If so, the ZENworks endpoint management track is for you. We’ll introduce you to the Micro Focus Endpoint Management portfolio, the challenges it addresses and the future. Come find out how you can effectively manage and secure your IT assets and move with confidence into the future using ZENworks.


So, if you are looking for one or more InfoSec solutions spanning security operations, application security, identity and access management (IAM), endpoint management and data security, then the Micro Focus Cybersecurity Summit 2018 in September is for you. Register today to see our customer-centric innovations across our security portfolio that help organizations take a holistic, open and intelligent approach to security that tackles today’s most sophisticated threats.

Fantastic Vivit Florida LUG Meeting!

Posted By Bob Crews, Friday, August 3, 2018
Updated: Thursday, August 2, 2018


by Bob Crews
Vivit Board Director/
Co-Leader Florida LUG


The Florida LUG held an exciting, informative and successful meeting at Cigar City Brewery in Tampa, FL on Tuesday, July 17, 2018. It was a unique meeting in that it included members from two user groups local to the Tampa Bay area - the Florida Vivit LUG and TBQAA (Tampa Bay Quality Assurance Association). Coordinated by Vivit Co-leaders, Paul Shovlin and myself, as well as the TBQAA board. Seventeen attendees enjoyed complimentary beer (sponsored by Checkpoint Technologies – a Micro Focus Platinum partner), pizza (provided by Kforce), and a raffle to any members who “brought a friend”.

Opening the FL Vivit chapter meeting.

Paul Shovlin presented an overview of Vivit, highlighting the mission of Vivit and the many benefits of being a Vivit member. I took the opportunity to emphasize to the attendees the significant value of belonging to Vivit even if one is not a Micro Focus solutions user citing the accessibility to a network of knowledgeable IT experts and SIG (Special Interest Groups) webinars covering a variety of topics relevant to today’s IT and software testing landscape.

An overview of Micro Focus DevOps Suite

Sneha Crews, Checkpoint Technologies’ Director of Support Services, did an excellent job of capturing attendees' attention with a presentation of, “A Day in the Life of a DevOps Engineer”! She provided a DevOps Market overview, common challenges of DevOps at the Enterprise scale, and a deep-dive into the solutions within the Micro Focus DevOps suite. The discussion and questions at the end of the presentation were outstanding!

Sneha discussing “Life in the Day of a
DevOps Engineer”

The meeting resulted in the registration of five new Vivit members with considerable praise from members of both user groups for conducting a joint meeting! It introduced local professionals, who otherwise might not have known, to Vivit and its support of Micro Focus.

If you haven’t joined your local user group through Vivit, be sure to do it today!

Arizona LUG Gathers at Topgolf

Posted By Mark Herbert, Thursday, July 12, 2018
Updated: Monday, July 9, 2018


by Mark Herbert
Arizona LUG Leader

Last month, the Vivit Arizona Local User Group gathered at Topgolf in Scottsdale. Greenlight Group and Orasi hosted the event. They were excited to show Vivit members the latest offerings and updates from Micro Focus, and announced at this year’s software Summits!

From the IT Operations Management Summit, Greenlight Group delivered a presentation on Hybrid Cloud Management (HCM). HCM delivers DevOps-driven hybrid and multicloud management, application release automation, end-to-end orchestration, along with cloud service brokering and governance. HCM allows you to quickly design, provision, and orchestrate cloud services utilizing cloud analytics, capacity planning, and showback. HCM enables your team to provide anything as a service through platform as a service (PaaS), database as a service (DBaaS), and anything as a service (XaaS) capabilities.


From the Application Development Management Summit Micro Focus delivered a presentation of how we can deliver speed and quality at scale with Micro Focus' next generation of solutions, ALM Octane, StormRunner Load and StormRunner Functional.

After the presentations we networked over food, drinks, and of course golf! One lucky attendee (Randy Wong of Honeywell) won our door prize (an Amazon Echo)! It was an informative and fun evening! We look forward to our next event!

If you haven’t joined your local user group through Vivit, be sure to do it today!
